The latest and the smallest M division car BMW M2 is up for sale in UK from April of 2016. BMW M2 will be replacing 1M coupe and E30 generation M3. BMW M2 is based on the same platform as the 2 Series just a tad wider than 2 series. Sharing the same structure integrity with 2 Series means it is made of steel.

 

In comparison with the other M cars such as M3 and M4 which are made from aluminium and composites. There is not much of a weight difference between M2 and M3. It is merely 25kg lighter than its bigger sibling. But apart from that the M2 carries its suspension setup from M3 hence wider than the 2 series.

M2 is powered by 3.0 litre turbocharged straight six engine producing 365bhp. The main attraction of this engine is that it does not have any torque reduction at low revs giving the car performance like a natural aspirated one, also it produces 369lb ft of torque at just 1450rpm. As an M division car it’s not a surprise that M2 gets the same active rear limited slip differential just like its bigger siblings. With all these factors added to its resume M2 is capable of destroying its cheaper rivals from fellow German manufacturer ie Mercedes A45 AMG and Audi RS3. The car can give Porsche Cayman a run for its money though.
